This study aimed to analyze the content of Records Data Management (RDM) training programs provided by 51 out of 121 university libraries in North America that implemented RDM services, and to provide implications from the results. For the content analysis, 317 titles of classroom training programs and 42 headings at the highest level from the tables of content of online tutorials were collected and coded based on 12 data literacy competencies identified from previous studies. Among classroom training programs, those regarding data processing and analysis competency were offered the most. The highest number of the libraries provided classroom training programs in relation to data management and organization competency. The third most classroom training programs dealt with data visualization and representation competency. However, each of the remaining 9 competencies was covered by only a few classroom training programs, and this implied that classroom training programs focused on the particular data literacy competencies. There were five university libraries that developed and provided their own online tutorials. The analysis of the headings showed that the competencies of data preservation, ethics and data citation, and data management and organization were mainly covered and the difference existed in the competencies stressed by the classroom training programs. For effective RDM training program, it is necessary to understand and support the education of data literacy competencies that researchers need to draw research results, in addition to competencies that university librarians traditionally have taught and emphasized. It is also needed to develop educational resources that support continuing education for the librarians involved in RDM services.
The purpose of this study is to analyze the first edition of Brown’s Subject Classification and to understand the implications of today’s library classification. For this purpose, the first edition of the Subject Classification published in 1906 was analyzed. The analysis results are divided into three main areas. First, SC is divided into eleven main classes and each class is subdivided into enumerated subdivisions from 000 to 999. Second, As a method of synthesizing the classification numbers, there were three methods of synthesis. There was a flexibility to insert a new classification number at the appropriate location when a new topic that does not appear in the main table appeared. Implications for classification studies can be divided into four main categories. First, SC proposed a method of classification number synthesis for composite topics, which is an innovative method that was not available in previous library classification. Second, the subject matter was explained in various aspects through the operation of auxiliary tables supporting the facets. Third, it is possible to easily insert a new topic into the classification system by using the SC that can have a flexible classification system for each library, or to use a short classification number according to the size of the library collection. Fourth, it provided a directory that can be considered as access points for digital materials.
This study was intended to confirm the perception of the users for the public libraries specialized service through the difference in library service quality according to the availability of specialized services by utilizing ‘LibQUAL+’ that is a service quality assessment tool. As a results, there is difference in the minimum and perceived levels between libraries that provide assessment result specialized services for service levels and those that did not. And there was no difference in the expected level. The degree of service showed generally higher user perception in the Adequacy Gap and Superiority Gap than libraries that do not offer specialized services. Therefore, the users of public libraries recognize that libraries that offer specialized services are better served than libraries that do not.
Prior to the concrete and practical use of closed schools, this study was designed to identify trends in the use of closed schools, and the possibility and direction of the library’s use of closed schools based on the status of closed schools and use cases. As a result of the case analysis, the building of libraries using closed schools can be reborn as libraries with different characteristics from general public libraries, such as providing complex cultural spaces, eco-friendly spaces, and local community places. In addition, based on the results of the study, future direction of library closure is suggested as follows: Provide local economic contribution and local revitalization opportunities, life-friendly and friendly space for local residents, recycling space linked with elderly welfare, care service, urban to rural Immigrants, creation of added value and creation of local business using closed schools, environment-friendly space, recycling as a complex community center, recycled into a space that meets and complements local needs.
Mendeley readership data could be used to understand how research outcome be spent outside of academia in multi way. So it could be utilized to understand unknown world which citation rate could not explain still now. This study, by conducting a country network analysis using Mendeley’s co readership data about articles of Korea related research, clusters countries that share common academic interest. As a result, the US and other advanced countries in all fields showed high overall and regional centrality, indicating that they have overall cooperation and potential for exchange of Korea related studies. Some developing countries have shown high regional centrality and are linked to common academic interests. In the medical and social sciences, the OECD and developing countries have formed a separate group of readers, and the engineering sector has been characterized by emerging developing countries as a large community of readers. In addition, engineering science field has shown that network density is relatively high, so there might be high possibility of academic exchanges, knowledge dissemination and cooperation among countries.
Circulation data is a key data set of academic libraries in terms of collection development and service improvement This study aims to identify the characteristics of circulation measures and their feasibility. This study collected the circulation data of 10 colleges in a university and analyzed 4 measures based on the circulation data: circulation frequency, circulation entropy, circulation h-index, and circulation divergence. These measures are to present the circulation topics of each college. This study identified that circulation entropy tends to present general topics which are popular for many colleges, but circulation divergence tends to present specific topics which are preferred by a specific college.
Recently, as the amount of academic literature has increased rapidly and complex researches have been actively conducted, researchers have difficulty in analyzing trends in previous research. In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to classify information in units of academic papers. However, in Korea, there is no academic database in which such information is provided. In this paper, we propose an automatic classification system that can classify domestic academic literature into multiple classes. To this end, first, academic documents in the technical science field described in Korean were collected and mapped according to class 600 of the DDC by using K-Means clustering technique to construct a learning set capable of multiple classification. As a result of the construction of the training set, 63,915 documents in the Korean technical science field were established except for the values in which metadata does not exist. Using this training set, we implemented and learned the automatic classification engine of academic documents based on deep learning. Experimental results obtained by hand-built experimental set-up showed 78.32% accuracy and 72.45% F1 performance for multiple classification.
The archival contents of the National Archives of Korea are organized so that anyone can easily use the records with a lot of social interest or request for reading. However, there are some problems in accessibility of archival contents, lack of detailed information, difficult to use and less interesting delivery method, and lack of customized content. As an alternative to this, this study proposed the utilization method of the archival contents of the National Archives through YouTube channel. For this purpose, we analyze the status and problems of the archival contents of the National Archives and understand the contents of the YouTube channel of the foreign agencies and the National Archives, and evaluate and compare them. Based on this, we propose and apply the process of the archival contents visualization using YouTube. Through this, We expect that the recognition and usability of the contents information of the National Archives of Records will be improved.
This study aims to identify the effects of instruction methods on the students’ knowledge and attitudes to persue an effective instruction for information literacy. For this purpose, a copyright class as a quasi-experiment is provided to students in a high school in different ways including the teacher-centered lecture and the student-centered Jigsaw cooperative learning program. As a result, Group D (Jjgsaw method) showed the highest educational effectiveness among the four groups in terms of the knowledge of copyright. the group also showed higher instructional effectiveness compared to other groups in the practical attitude, which was one of the three types of attitude to copyright.
The purpose of this study is to suggest the concept of data literacy and its detailed competencies based on humanities focused on LIS. To do this, we define the concept of data literacy by comparing and analyzing researches related data literacy, data information literacy, and digital literacy in domestic and foreign. And we design the basic 11 elements of data literacy based on digital humanities concepts. The result of this study is expected to be used as a basic data when design henceforward data literacy framework.
The purpose of this study is to provide basic data for implementing library collaborative instruction (LCI) through investigating the effects of high school teachers’ perceptions and experiences of school libraries on the recognition of LCI. To accomplish it, a questrionnaire survey of 198 teachers in 14 high schools in Seoul was conducted. As a result, teachers’ perceptions of school libraries and school library experience had significant effects on the their willingness to implement LCI, which consisted of educational effect(EE), necessity and implementation plan(IP). In short, teachers’ perception of school libraries influenced most variables in EE and did not influence necessity. All independent variables had significant effects on IP. This can be interpreted as that teachers recognize the need of LCI, but the perception of EE is influenced by conveying tool for the knowledge of LCI, such as education, promotion, and experience.
Academic libraries need to select and purchase essential collections to support students and faculty in education and research. Therefore, libraries reflect patrons’ information needs on collection development through patron purchase requests. This study analyzed the pattern and efficiency of patron purchase requests in a longer-term perspective; for over a decade. Patron purchase requests show different tendencies depending on academic characteristics, which enabled libraries to identify the users’ information needs in various subjects. Typically users contributed to collection development by expressing information needs in their fields of study through purchase requests. In the meantime, users in certain fields showed interest in other subject areas besides their own to select general books on various topics. Through this study, it became evident that a major portion of library collections were affected by active purchase requests from a small number of users. However those books were proven to be in demand in terms of effectiveness. Patron-driven acquisition is being implemented as an effective collection development policy.
Knowledge utilization is an activity directly linked to organizational capacity and is the most essential activity in knowledge management that is to produce new values. Thus, systematic and comprehensive understanding of factors and the environment that affect knowledge utilization are needed. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of information culture and organizational culture on knowledge utilization. For this, data were collected from 300 workers from 6 institutions including government-funded research institutes, libraries, and cooperation research institutes. This study analyzes the effects of six aspects of information cultures and four organizational culture types on knowledge utilization. The results show that information cultures(control, transparency, proactiveness) and organizational culture (The Clan Culture, The Adhocracy Culture, The Market Culture, The Hierarchy Culture) are significantly influential factors for the knowledge utilization. Based on results, this study provides the implication of knowledge sharing in the organizations and suggests further studies.
